It’s finally time to see what that sneak peak photo looks like in full, trust me, you’ll be amazed at what this contraption looks like……

Drum roll……

The latest (old) technology in vehicle design, the Landskimmer provides not only a fast rocket propelled boosts (taken from a Stormhawk gunship) but it also incorparates two close combat flamers and two long range weaponry. This vehicle can be a tactical preference for close and personal agendas against Xenos scum and heretic traitors alike!

This first iteration of the Landskimmer (MKI) was developed by the Black Templars Crusader Techmarine, Ivanson, during the Third war for Armageddon. He suggested that there should be a quicker way of burning Ork scum, so he found the parts necessary to create his new (old) design.

At first it was a success when it was deployed to burn the Ork horde that was heading towards the outpost, however, it was soon apparent that the machine spirit had mistaken this prototype for a Stormtalon gunship. Activating the engines on full power, the craft headed straight for the Ork horde and exploded in a mushrooom cloud of promethium…..!?!


For an imaginative kitbash, I think it’s pretty cool considering I’ve not done kitbash from scrap before. While it does look very impractical for its appearance and function (well, actually a lot of the Imperiums vehicle designs look blocky and impractical), but still it’s a grim dark future, so anything is possible! 

I would love to deploy this model for games of 8th edition, but it doesn’t have any hombrew rules (I’m not a great rules writer to be honest), nor are there any existing rule sheet to substitute. Therefore, if anyone reading this would like to write some rules for this model, by all means do so. But on one condition, it has to be apart of the Black Templars chapter, since it’s not been shared to other factions due to its prototype development.

Good luck!

  1. That’s just awesome mate. I would try to elevate to a bit off the ground by using a small skimmer stand. Also if you have some small armour piece to put at the front, over the assault cannon. It would help giving a more robust front.

    All and all, great build. Ruleswise. I’m not sure if there is any suitable Dataslate. Twin assault cannon and twin heavy flamers, right. That’s not too common.

    1. Thank you!
      For the skimmer stand, I don’t have any to use, however I could try to use other methods to create the same effect for the model. I’ve got some spare parts that can just about cover the cannons, but that’ll need testing though.

      Thank you very much for the hobby tips and advice!
